    What is this part & What does it do?

    Hi, 1.9CDTi Zafira B, towards the rear of the engine a metal bar about a foot long and 10mm wide with 4 plastic bits on.

    It looks like it fits into 4 plastic grommets with nipples on them which look like they might be blanking off holes in some kind of manifold.

    Anyway this bent bar with plastic bits is off and the car isn't starting.

    What is this bar and could it stop the car from firing?

    Thanks

    Bezza

    So if it fell off what would happen?

    Would the car fail to start, run poor, nothing at all?

    That is a very long thread.

    Can this bar/linkage falling off cause the engine to not run and when it does, throw out loads of black smoke?
